Virtual Conference Support
– remote, part-time, volunteer/internship role with stipend, multiple positions available
The Hydrogen Business Council of Canada (HBC), based in Ontario, is running a virtual conference on the impacts of hydrogen energy, for which we require event support in the lead- up to and during the conference on November 11-12, 2021. Multiple positions are available for this posting as we require multiple conference support team members. Work activities will vary between members of this conference support team as they will each be assigned to support with different conference sessions and the associated conference organizer, session chairperson, or track director.
Assisting in this conference will provide a unique opportunity for post-secondary students and recent graduates to gain meaningful exposure into the growing clean hydrogen industries in Ontario and Canada and to other subject areas that may be related to their individual assignment. Such related subjects may include specific technologies, emissions reduction, energy storage, transportation applications, sustainable manufacturing, policy development, partnerships, etc.
We recognize that women have been underrepresented in the broader hydrogen sector. For this reason, we are reserving preference for qualified candidates who are women/womxn and hope this opportunity may stem their further involvement related to hydrogen in their careers.
The Hydrogen Business Council is a non-profit industry association that has three main goals:
The HBC focuses on representing hydrogen industries in Canada, namely in Ontario.
*Given the environmental and energy system contexts in the province, the HBC views zero- emissions (not net-zero) methods of hydrogen generation as the only methods suitable for hydrogen industries in Ontario. Not all hydrogen production methods are equal. Some methods produce hydrogen out of fossil fuels and in the process, also emit GHGs, which contribute to climate change if not captured and then sequestered or stored. We focus our awareness raising efforts only on those hydrogen generation methods that use renewable energy (including nuclear power) to produce hydrogen without also generating GHG emissions, nor requiring capture and sequestration or storage of those emissions.
In the lead-up to the event, conference support will:
During days of the conference, they will:
